    My recollection is slightly different, plus logic tells me what you describe would never be possible.

    I “think” it works the other way round. Once you have created the NANE entry by entering a GIVN and a SURN, you can edit that NAME without it changing the GIVN or SURN. But if you edit either GIVN or SURN directly they will re-write the NAME which you will need to edit again.

    So the work flow must always be to set the GIVN and SURN first, then you can alter the NAME.

    However I rarely use that feature so I am happy to be corrected, and to look at the code (current and some earlier variants) to see if anything has changed.
